It was a major turning year for Gleb Torres, who looked like a growing star 1991- just saw his work in subsequent seasons dropped sharply. In 2022, Torres achieved a considerable score. 85/.243/.332 slash with 18 home run and steals, and while that didn’t carry over to ALDS, he did have a solid regular season. Versatile veteran DJ LeMahieu, with a toe injury, may be back for the ALCS.
There’s no question, though, of the Astros’ second-base advantage in this series. Jose Altuve had one of his best offensive seasons in what could well be Cooperstown’s career. Altuve was cut. 245/.403/.533 and16 home runs and age steal . He is terrible in ALDS (0-for- with six strikeouts), but we’ve seen him stand on this stage too many times (including, infamously, the last time these two Series-ending home run at ALCS meeting in 2020) figure him out.
Jeremy Peña had solid seminal moments in his rookie season with ALDS in Game 3 of 2009 with a personal homer that broke the longest scoreless playoff tie in history. He was also a litter, hitting a single for Yordan Alvarez’s two game-changing homers in Game 1 and Game 2. This year, Peña had a respectable 38 wRC+ is replacing Carlos Correa reliable defense.
It’s never a good thing for the Yankees when you bench the guy you started the year in the knockout game. That’s what happened with Isiah Kiner-Falefa in ALDS, he didn’t do much offensively and was inconsistent as a defender. Rookie Oswaldo Cabrera bumped into him.
Alex Bregman played from
strongest season since , cut. 107/.300/.449 is characterized by a low strikeout rate, high walk rate and good defense. He also participated in 5-for- is a piece of cake in ALDS.
Former MVP Josh Donaldson’s first season in the Bronx didn’t go so well. Although he was still good on the defensive end (7 points above average), he just cut. 102/.107/.245. It was his worst season since his rookie season 585 and Auckland.
Yordan Alvarez is currently the most Terrible hitter. He swings the bat twice and changes the ALDS and the result is .222/.387 /.622 slash with 23 regular season home run. Back to the 2015 World Series, he There is a 1.20 OPS, five Home runs, five doubles, two threes and 10 walk in 30 Playoff plate appearances. will play.
Between the disaster of Joey Gallo and the fracture of Andrew Bening Tendi following a midseason trade, the Yankees have had a lot of trouble in the left field this year. They had started Cabrera, but then replaced Kiner-Falefa with him, bringing the struggling Aaron Hicks back into the lineup (until he left with a knee injury in Game 5). The best hope is for Benin Tendi to return for this round, but even then he is no Alvarez.
